HMO definition flowcharts


>> Flow Charts for HMO Definitions

If you need more information about which properties are HMOs the charts below may be helpful. These charts will be used by the West of England local authorities to help them decide which buildings are HMOs. They do not, however, indicate which HMOs are licensable.

Please follow the links below to access the charts:

Is the building an HMO?

Chart 1 - determines shared houses, hostels and bedsits

Chart 2 - determines mixed conversions e.g. bedsits and self contained flats

Chart 3 - Determines flats in multiple occupation

Chart 4 - Determines mixed tenure converted self-contained flats

Buildings exempt from being HMOs
